The view from Bald Mountain
The mailboat that broke down
My very favorite: Water lilies

    How is that for alphabet soup? My daughter finally was able to defend her Phd in organic chemistry at U of R and we all set out for a week in the Adirondacks, near Old Forge. Packing and lists took up the previous week and we all survived together for a week with not the greatest of weather. We were able to do a canoe trip down the Moose River, climb Bald Mountain, go for the mail boat ride (which broke down in front of a million dollar home and we were invited in for coffee until we were rescued by another boat, not too shabby), and all get along. My two kids plus spouses and grandchildren plus my husband's brothers and sisters all spend a week here. I did bring the 301 and pieced two tops from numbered blocks, but the grandkids took over the table I brought to sew on for their play animals. 
    Doing laundry and cleanup today. Sewing tomorrow.

You did a lot on your vacation. Some just sit around. And you did have some sunshine. The reason you all got along is represented in the fact that you gave up your space for the grands to play. Apparently your whole family is like that... making way for the next bunch... a thoughtful bunch of people. (Luckily it was only a week. lol)
Coffee at the $M house... lots of people in the vicinity are thoughtful.
Thanks for sharing this (heart)ly story.

Congratulations to our daughter Linda! That is a huge accomplishment!
I am so jealous of your getting to the Adirondacks! I always feel like a fish put back in the water when we make it there.
